Observing Notes

22" f/4 Obsession @ 180x

While the core of the lensing galaxy was steady, the lensed images were not consistently visible, observing took patience and perseverance, for moments very small, very faint images would condense in the speckle pattern beside the core, faint but distinct, a challenging observation desite a 22" scope and good conditions, a notable gold tinge to the system
